Sitting in English class, the sun
shines bright through the window.
My thoughts and mind seem to fade
away. Wishing I was outside these
walls. All I see is bricks; yet I feel
there's no way out. I wake up happy
from a dream, yet I realize where I am
and my heart seems to fall apart.
I wish I was there maybe anywhere yet
I'm stuck in this little square. I see
why the caged bird sings. Same old
things every day, nuffin new, so I just
sit and pray. I day dream of a better
day and a path to find my way.
Feel so sad but I can't be mad, I found this
way so I here today. the time's a
ticking yet I see no clock.
